Erotica does not use a council facility. Further, I am not sure of this being an issue in the region. I believe different groups in the community should have the right to use council facilities as long as they meet the application criteria, respect Council property and not harm or interfere with others. I don’t believe that council should act as the arbiter of good taste or what is right and wrong.

I think that provided such events are managed appropriately then we should not have such a restriction.

John Palino

The Council cannot and should not discriminate against enterprises based on religion or morality issues if their business are regulated, operated within the confines of the law, carried out with discretion for the consumption of willing and consenting adult clientele and away from minors and the general public. In general, governments have no business in the bedrooms of New Zealanders when they are consenting adults. Although we do need to consider the location of some of these facilities and the possible connection with other facilities.
